We have stayed at the French Quarter Inn several times and it has always given us superb service. Lady fingers and champagne greet you at check in and fruit, cheese, and wine are there by the fireplace in late afternoon. At night there are sweets before you retire. The rooms are wonderful, quiet, and have all the finishing touches. Breakfast in the morning is welcoming for the day ahead. While the hotel is somewhat pricey and there is a valet parking fee, the quality more than makes up for the cost. I look forward to our next visit.

After reading the reviews on TA and seeing that French Quarter Inn was voted #1, we booked our 10th Anniversary trip. From the moment we arrived, I knew why it was voted number one. The friendly front desk staff started off "the spoiling" immediately. We were pleasantly surprised to find our room had been upgraded at no extra charge to a King Executive Suite with a balcony. Situated right over the market area, it was a nice view even if it wasn't a huge balcony.

Then, a knock on the door, and there was a bottle of champagne with a note wishing us a happy anniversary. It was just such a nice way to start our trip, our first ever to Charleston.

Every day there was a very nice continental breakfast spread in the morning, a wine and cheese hour in the afternoon, and warm cookies and milk before bedtime. All of these were served in the lobby (unless you wanted breakfast delivered to your room), which created the sense of a bed and breakfast community even in this larger hotel setting.

As a matter of fact, that's how I describe the place to others: the personal attention of a bed and breakfast with the elegance and style of a very nice hotel. With only 50 rooms in the hotel, it offered the chance for faces of guests to become familiar and friendly.

One night we even had trouble finding reservations for dinner, but the front desk staff made it happen. They helped us get into Grill 225, a superior restaurant!!! We happened to go during restaurant week, so on top of a fabulous dinner, it was at a completely reasonable price.

Every day we were greeted with smiles and "how can we help you?" We were treated as if they knew us well. That's the charm!

If you have a reason to treat yourself, by all means, stay at the French Quarter Inn. It's worth every cent!

A 10 year anniversary celebration is a very important one and we are honored to have been part of the celebration. It was truly our pleasure to upgrade you and ensure your celebration started off like every celebration should, with Champagne. Your generous compliments and wonderful descriptions of your stay are greatly appreciated. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and treated yourselves, you deserved it. We can’t wait to celebrate another 10 years with you.

If one is looking for luxery, location, and a staff willing to go above and beyond, the French Quarter Inn in Charleston is for you. We stayed from Sept. 25th, 2011 to the 29th and will never stay anyplace else in Charleston and really why would anyone want to. The location is within walking distance of some of the finest restaurants in Charleston and right next to the fabulous MarketPlace. The staff was more than happy to help novice travelers book restaurant reservations(all were fabulous by the way) and city tours. After a busy day it was nice to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and unwind with other guests. This Hotel makes you feel like you are part of their very exclusive family. I miss them already and will be back!

Room Tip: King bed rooms wih balcony were wonderful to sit out and relax, have coffee etc.

I found this wondeful place on trip advisor but each time I checked was unable to book it because the hotel was full. We arrived in Charleston on a Wednesday without a reservation (DO NOT try this on a weekend!!) and stopped at the Visitor's Center. They were able to book it for us. The hotel staff, with so much knowledge, directed us to all of the best that Charleston has to offer. The hotel is as good as the precious ratings indicate. When we visit Charleston again we will make sure we are able to get a reservation at the French Quarter Inn!

Ordinarily I am not crazy about small hotels because they either lack services or I feel like we are being "watched over". This hotel was totally different. The service was amazing and personal but not "invasive". The extra treats, wine and cheese, continental breakfast and beverages were a bonus. Everyone smiled. While the hotel would serve a family very well, it was not overpopulated by families seeking to feed "free breakfast" to hoards of kids. We had a great trip. Can't say enough about this place.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first level of rooms--on the same level as the front desk. Perfect for asking a question or two, grabbing a newspaper or a glass of iced tea...(convenient, because it is pretty warm in Charleston in August...)
